The Rainmaker Awards brings together the North West corporate finance community to celebrate the best deals and teams from the 12 months. The North West has now firmly established itself as a major centre for deals and professional excellence, second only to London in the UK.

Now in its fourth year, the Rainmakers is different because the winners are voted on by the corporate finance community in a one firm, one vote system. The shortlisting process is under way and we are looking forward to another great night celebrating all the fantastic work and achievements of the sector.

This year we are adding an extra category to reflect the changing nature of the corporate finance sector. The Changemaker of the Year award will recognise the work of an individual who has done their best to make a difference when it comes to diversity, equality and inclusion.

No tuxedos and no long speeches, just an evening to recognise the best work and to network with the leading individuals and firms in the region.

The awards offer a great opportunity to recognise and showcase the achievements and success of business deals in the region. Click here to see to view the shortlist.
